Candlelight Vigil

1,000 American soldiers have now been killed in Iraq. Will you join me in an emergency candlelight vigil, on Thursday evening, September 9th, to honor them and reflect on the loss of their lives?

Our vigil will be simple and dignified. We’ll gather at 8:00pm, and stand in a circle, silently, for 45 minutes or so. Together, we’ll acknowledge the sacrifice made by these 1,000 brave American men and women.

Please “sign up”: to come. Here are the details:

Vigils just like this one will happen throughout the country, so even if you can’t come to the one listed above, you can click on “this link”: to find a different one closer to you, or to create one of your own.

Please bring a candle for yourself, an extra one or two if you can, and matches or a lighter.

I hope you can come — it’s important that we mark this solemn occasion together.

Thank you.
